The application details for tariff exemptions of Chinas third round of tariff countermeasures will be disclosed at a later date.var addthis_config = {“data_track_addressbar”:false};(For the latest China news, Please follow Peoples Daily on Twitter and Facebook)(Web editor: Liang Jun, Bianji)Add your comment/* * * CONFIGURATION VARIABLES: EDIT BEFORE PASTING INTO YOUR WEBPAGE * * */var;var disqus_shortname=;var disqus_identifier=;if ({disqus_shortname=enpeople;disqus_identifier = 9614148;}/* * * DONT EDIT BELOW THIS LINE * * */(function() {var dsq = document.createElement(script); dsq.type = text/javascript; dsq.async = true;dsq.src = // + disqus_shortname +;(document.getElementsByTagName(head)[0] || document.getElementsByTagName(body)[0]).appendChild(dsq);})();Please enable JavaScript to view the comments powered by Disqus.Related readingExpert calls for recognizing the new normal of China-US relationshipExperts say China, US have plenty to gain from closer cooperationChina’s trade with US shrinks, undercuts Washington’s leverage amid trade warChina firmly opposes U.S. hegemonism over trading issue: FM spokespersonNew tariffs even on childrens books spur anxiety in U.S. publishing industryCommentary: Reopening consultations right choice for China, U.S.China’s stable economic progress reveals strength, confidenceTrade talks to resume next monthConcrete efforts needed to create favorable conditions for China-U.S. trade talks: MOCU.S.-initiated trade war spreading harm around world, says Chinese envoy to AustraliaWe RecommendHighlightes of vintage fair in Moscow, Russia
